This year we are raising money to help support Cancer Research Wales.
Pugh’s are pledging to raise £12,000 for this amazing charity to help directly fund their world-class research projects which are taking place right here in Wales.  By visiting Santa at Pugh's, both grown-ups and little ones will have donated towards this total.

At Cancer Research Wales they are funding some of the most innovative developments in cancer treatment, early diagnosis and cure. Every donation they receive goes directly towards enabling their teams of leading scientists here in Wales to find the answers to questions being asked by cancer researchers all over the world. This groundbreaking research will directly benefit Welsh patients and cancer sufferers everywhere.

Our grotto experience involves light effects, sound effects and smoke effects.

Each time slot caters for 6 children and up to 15 adults and to ensure the safety of little ones, adults cannot book alone without a child ticket. Therefore, please be aware that once the slots for children are filled, no more adults can be added on as an additional booking so please make sure that all grandparents, aunties, uncles are included in the same booking so they don't miss out!

For School group bookings please email with number of children and adults, potential dates/times and your contact details and a member of staff will get back in touch with you to arrange.

Our award winning experience promises a mesmerising 30 minute adventure, on a journey like no other! This year we're taking you on an unforgettable adventure visiting different countries for your little ones to experience some of the Christmas traditions other children have from around the world. With your own personal Tinsel Tours Elf you'll find yourself in the centre of a captivating adventure as you jingle all the way to a memorable moment with Santa.

It’s important to remember that we may sometimes speak different languages, but we all talk to each other. We sometimes wear different clothes but we all get dressed. And sometimes we eat different food but we all eat. There are nearly 200 countries in our world and more than 7 billion people! This years' experience you and your family will see some of the special places that Santa visits and discover how other people celebrate Christmas in their countries.
